Donna Yasay, President of HomeGrid Forum, said: “HomeGrid Forum’s G.hn Certification program ensures all G.hn products are multi-vendor interoperable even with multi-vendor silicon. We are very encouraged that our members are submitting so many devices for certification and pleased to see how quickly the number of G.hn certified products has risen over the last year, including products for different types of mediums. We hope to see the number continue to rise as G.hn enters new markets.”
The HomeGrid Forum G.hn Certification program began in 2015 and involves a strict compliance and interoperability testing program to ensure the fastest, simplest and most secure means to connect the rising number of devices being installed by consumers on the home network. G.hn networks are the most suitable for providing an in-home ultra-broadband experience as they operate over any available mediums, extend Wi-Fi coverage and performance throughout the home and are easy to install.
